The vacuum hose that you are speaking of is the charcol canister hose
and I have personally tuned many of theese cars and never disconnected
this hose for tune up procedures.I have done checks of my adjustments
with it disconnected and connected and found no significant difference
with the adjustment.Now before everyone YELLS at me for describing an un
autherised procedure this only should be done when you are not having
any unusual problems.
